Joyland by Stephen King

"I love crime, I love mysteries, and I love ghosts," says Stephen King, who has combined these elements into a wonderful new story. Joyland is a whodunit noir crime novel and a haunting ghost story set in the world of an amusement park. from

1973, Devin Jones, college student, takes a summer job at the indie Joyland carnie on the beach in North Carolina. A fortune teller and a boy in a wheel chair give him warnings, a murdered girl haunts the Horror House and Devin saves a few lives. The carnival slang and characters add another layer to the crime and ghost story. A coming of age novel with a new twist.
